The Business World

Last week's stock mar

The Financial World ket was greatly disturbed, first of all by the manipulative methods employed for the purpose of covering short contracts, or of making a lower basis of values. The market was hardly less disturbed, however, by a number of rumors, which may or may not have a basis in fact. The Cuban scare was carefully fostered until it became a matter of belief with many that President Cleveland was on the point of doing something which must involve us in a war with Spain. This suggestion was emphasized by the remembrance that it is only a little less than a year since when, without any warning, the President's Venezuelan proclamation appeared. Neither was there difficulty in making people believe that the coming session of Congress must be productive of unsettling legislation. A third rumor was that of the disruption of the Joint Traffic Association. The effect of all these methods and stories on the market was noted in a decided fall in the average of the stock list. The money market has seen a continued easing of rates. Money on call has been loaned at 2 to 3 per cent. for bankers' balances. Time money may be had at 31⁄2 per cent. for sixty days, and large amounts have been so placed. Commercial paper has grown in supply, but the demand far outstrips any supply yet attained. Quotations are 4 to 41⁄2 per cent. for sixty to ninety day indorsed bills receivable.

Foreign exchange has witnessed

a further advance, the logical result of the buying of much long sterling for investment, the ease of money facilitating borrowing on it. The exchange is supposed to profit by the increased rates which ordinarily rule here during December and January. The Bank of England minimum rate of discount remains unchanged at 4 per cent. The net gold in our Treasury has risen to about $130,000,000. Last week's statement of the New York City banks showed an increase in deposits of over $14,000,000, in loans of nearly $9,000,000, in specie and legal-tender holdings of about $5,500,000, and in the surplus reserve of $2,000,000.

The Commercial World


The most important feature of last week's commercial world was the rise in wheat to the highest prices of the year. In New York City No. 2 red, the standard grade, sold at 994 cents per bushel, and December touched 91%. May wheat, in which speculation is largest, reached 90%. A Beerbohm statement has been issued, placing the amount of wheat needed by importing countries at 460,000,000 bushels and the surplus which the exporting countries have to meet this requirement at 430,000,000 bushels. Our large exports from San Francisco and Tacoma continue,but our total exports of wheat and flour from both coasts do not amount to as much as last week, although far in excess of any corresponding week since 1892. while Western receipts are much behind last year's at this period. Exports of merchandise continue to exceed imports. The gain in cotton shipments has been the most notable, amounting to almost three-fifths. In addition to the advance in the price of wheat there have been advances in corn, oats, cotton, wool, lead, tin, and lard. Print-cloths, leather, sugar, coffee, and pork remain unchanged: flour, petroleum, turpentine, and hides are lower. Quotations for Bessemer steel are unchanged, but billets for export have declined. Bessemer pig-iron is slightly lower, but nails have declined greatly since the collapse of the pool. Instead of $2.55 at Pittsburg, nails are now offered at $1.50. Another trust-that of the beam-makers-has also "resulted in an explosion," and there is a consequent fall in price for the product. The New York "Tribune "thinks that these events may materially increase the demand for finished products of iron, which has for some time been too small for comfort, because the prices demanded by the various trusts have been too high. A third trust-the Window Glass Association -also went to pieces last week, but is now being reconstructed. No commercial market,

however, is attracting so much attention just now as is that in wool. Last week's sales amounted to twice the quantity usually consumed by our mills, and the speculation bids fair to continue. Despite this, manufactures of wool do not gain and can hardly gain while foreigners have several months in which to import woolens at existing rates of duty, the feeling in the trade being general that some new tariff will be enacted and that such a tariff will materially change present duties There were last week throughout the country (as reported by "Bradstreet's ") 295 business failures, being 13 fewer than the previous week, 7 more than in the week one year ago, and 12 fewer than two years ago.

Our National Housekeeping

On Saturday of last week the annual report of the Treasurer of the United States, Mr. Daniel N. Morgan, was published. From it we learn that, in the fiscal year ending June 30 last, receipts from all sources were nearly $327,000,000, as against $313,000.000 for the fiscal year 1895. The expenditures were $352,000,000, compared with $356,000,000 last


The deficiency for this year is. therefore, $25,000,000, being $17,000,000 less than for the previous year. From the $262,000.000 worth of bonds sold in 1894, 1895, and 1896 the receipts were $294,000,000. Mr. Morgan says:

In ordinary times and under ordinary circumstances there is a natural flow of gold toward the Treasury, which often is limited only by the capacity of the Treasury to carry the specie. The product of our mines finds its way to the mint, where it is paid for by checks, and these are presented at the counters of the Sub-Treasuries or through the Clearing-House in New York as currency obligations. The result is an increase of the gold reserve and a diminution of the available balance of notes and silver certificates. Gold imported in the form of bullion or foreign coin takes usually the same


Besides these two sources of ordinary gain to the

gold reserve, there is another, in the direct exchange of paper currency for the coin, where the paper is preferred for its greater convenience. Fortunate indeed has it been for the Treasury that, even during the most critical periods through which the country has recently passed, these currents of inflow have not been altogether checked, and that where their volume has been materially diminished the loss has been partly made good by the assistance of financial institutions. In the fifteen months ending with September last the withdrawals of gold from the Treasury in redemption of United States notes and Treasury notes amounted to the immense sum of $192,972,205, while the net gains of gold from all sources attained a total of $98,138,902.

At the close of the fiscal year our outstanding public debt aggregated $1,769,000,000, as against $1,676,000,000 the year before. The composition and distribution of the monetary stock for the fiscal year is thus estimated (hundreds omitted for clearness) :

Farm Exports

During the past fiscal year, according to Secretary Morton's report, the exports from our farms aggregated $570,000,000, an increase of $17,000,000 over the previous year. Never-theless, there was a falling off in the percent-age of agricultural products exported to the total exports, but this was due to the phenomenal sale abroad of our manufactured goods.. Of course our principal market is that of Great Britain and her colonies, absorbing 58 per cent. of our exports. To this market,, with the addition of Germany, France, Belgium, and Holland, we send four-fifths of our entire output. Mr. Morton calls attention to the fact that the wages paid by us in the production of wheat and cotton are 50 to 100 per cent. higher than in the countries with which we compete, while the wages paid in manufactures from metals are from 25 to 100 per cent. higher than the wages paid to workers in the same industries by other nations.

The entire aggregate is over $2,348,000,000, as compared with more than $2,399,000,000 for 1895. These figures show an apparent loss of over $50,000,000, but the Department officers declare that at the present time the loss exists no longer. Before the last fiscal year closed many millions of gold went abroad, thus showing the unfavorable balance, but it is said that since the recent great inflow of gold all of this balance and more is now in the country. It is worthy of note that a larger amount of National bank notes were redeemed last year than during any like period in the last decade.

About People

-Prior to his invention of the Ferris Wheel, George W. G. Ferris, who has just died, was distinguished as a bridge engineer. His great wheel was built under his own supervision. Its capacity was 1,440 passengers. It made both fame and fortune for Mr. Ferris.

-When the curtain went down at the Coates Opera-House, Kansas City, on the night of November 21, the oldest American or English actor, Mr. C. W. Couldock, left the stage forever, and ended his theatrical career. Mr. Couldock has been an actor for fifty-nine years. He is now nearly eighty-two years old.

-Mr. Augustus J. C. Hare, in his recent book, tells a good story of Father Healy, who was breakfasting with Gladstone lately. Mr. Gladstone said to him: "Father Healy, I went into a church in Rome once, and was offered a plenary indulgence for fifty francs; on what principle does your Church grant such things?" Father Healy replied: "Well, Mr. Gladstone, I don't want to go into theology with you, but all I can say is that if my Church offered you a plenary indulgence for fifty francs, she let you off very cheap."

-Governor-elect G. W. Atkinson, of West Virginia, is thus described in the Washington "Post:" "Wes' Atkinson, as his friends call him, is one of the best-liked men of the Mountain State, of which he is a native. Born in the city of Charlestown forty-nine years ago, he passed his younger days in editing a newspaper and practicing law at the same time. When he forsook journalism entirely for the bar, he moved to Wheeling, where he built up a paying practice that was interrupted for a little while by his election to the Fiftyfirst Congress. Governor Atkinson had no desire for a continuation of his career as a Representative, and regards Congressional life as utterly without attraction. In person the new Governor is very tall and straight, with prominent features, long black hair, and dark eyes and dark mustache. His bearing is

frank and cordial."

-The celebrated tenor, Italo Campanini, whose death has just occurred near Parma, Italy-the city of his birth-was "discovered" during the Garibaldi campaign. He was then a common soldier, and had enlisted when only fourteen years old. When the discovery of his wonderful voice was made, he left the army and studied singing for two years at the Conservatory of Parma, making his first appearance in the theater of his native town as the Notary in "La Sonnambula." He had not much success, however, until 1869, when he went to Milan and placed himself under the tuition of the famous teacher, Francesco Lamperti. After the characteristically thorough training from this master, Campanini appeared at La Scala in Milan, and was immediately pronounced by the critical audiences there to be one of the finest tenors of the age. His subsequent history is well known. He was

especially remarkable for the immense scope
of his repertory, including nearly eighty operas,
the tenor rôles of which he could sing at a few
hours' notice.

-The death of Mary Frances Scott-Siddons
recalls her many delightful Shakespearean
readings. The great-granddaughter of Sarah
Siddons was born in India in 1848, and was
married to Mr. Scott, an officer of the English
navy, in 1864. Three years later she began
giving readings in London, and soon after
went on the stage, appearing as Rosalind in
"As You Like It." She then came to Amer-
ica, gave some readings, and finally joined Mr.
Daly's company. It is an interesting fact that
her first appearance under his management
was also in the first Shakespearean production
which he made in New York City. It was at
the old New York Theater in Broadway, and
the play was "Much Ado About Nothing."
At that time Mrs. Siddons had wonderful
beauty. She appeared in other plays of
Shakespeare, such as " Twelfth Night" and
Macbeth," but Rosalind was always her
favorite part.

-By the death of Sir Benjamin Ward Rich-
ardson the world of medicine loses one of its
most distinguished ornaments. Perhaps there
have been in recent years few more famous
English physicians and authors of hygienic
works. Dr. Richardson's special endeavors
were in experimental researches on the poisons
of contagious diseases. These researches
resulted in the detection of a specially poison-
ous product common to those poisons, to which
he gave the name of Septine. Dr. Richard-
son also discovered the use of the ether spray
for local abolition of pain in surgical opera-
tions, and introduced methylene bichloride as
a general anæsthetic. He was equally well
known as the editor of the " Journal of Public
Health," and afterward of the "Social Science
Review." His many contributions to scien-
tific periodicals were all in the line of exploit-
ing the experimental method as a means of
advancing the medical profession. Some of
the subjects of these papers were especially
interesting-the study of disease by synthesis;

the restoration of life after various forms of
apparent death; the maintenance of life in
factitious atmospheres; the investigation of
the theory of a nervous atmosphere; the
effects of electricity on animal life, and methods
of killing animals without the infliction of
pain. He invented the lethal chamber. He
was also well known by his investigations of
the effects of alcohol on the human system.
Dr. Richardson has been the chief authority
in England upon whom Prohibitionists have
depended for scientific support. Of late he
had become greatly interested in bicycling,
and was the President of the English Society
of Cyclists.
